"β€˜Cheat code!' … the definition of a warrior, thank you for being the best leader and teammate. Enjoy retirement my guy," Warriors guard Klay Thompson commented on Livingston's IG post.

"Congrats with great career and welcome to retirement my guy," Zaza Pachulia added with a wine glass emoji on the end.

Steve Kerr and Stephen Curry also posted tributes to Livingston on social media.

I'm sure Livingston will be raising a glass himself tonight to what was an amazing NBA career and an inspiring journey of resilience.
